The Human Library a Success

The UIW Honors Program hosted the college's first Human Library on Wednesday, February 8, from 4-7pm. Readers raved about the ability to talk to human books about topics rife with misconceptions: civil rights activism, blindness, tattoo artist, refugees, and those in recovery from addiction or living with mental illness. One reader said, "I learned that people are much more than a label and their stories have many similarities with my own." And from another: "Personal stories can transform perceptions." A second edition is likely in store for 2018.
